Great Planes Mfg. Cosmic Wind Minnow .61-.91 Sport Racer ARF

Great Planes Mfg. Cosmic Wind Minnow .61-.91 Sport Racer ARF

It's the latest in Great Planes' series of Cosmic Wind sport racer
ARFs, and just as recognizable! Designed for intermediate-level
pilots, the Minnow is an R/C replica of the Formula One competitor
first introduced in 1949, and it flies as scale as it looks. With its
quality materials and ARF construction, the Minnow is a superb
everyday sport plane as well as a peerless pylon racer!

* Fiberglass fuselage!
* Mid-mounted symmetrical wing offers excellent flight
performance at both low and high speeds.
* Steerable tailwheel aids ground handling, and the smoothly
faired pushrod exits enhance the Minnow's scale appearance.
* A roomy radio compartment allows for easy installation of all
on-board gear.

Expertly Covered in Top FliteŽ MonoKoteŽ
Assembly takes as little as 12-15 hours. The sheeted, built-up
balsa/ply wing halves and tail surfaces are precovered in MonoKote,
and the fiberglass fuselage, cowl, wheel pants and aluminum landing
gear arrive factory-painted to match. A clear canopy, scale aluminum
spinner, decals and Great Planes hardware are all supplied.

* Wingspan: 63 in (1600mm)
* Wing Area: 775 sq in (50dm2)
* Weight: 7.25-8.25 lb (3.3-3.7kg)
* Wing Loading: 21.5-24.5 oz/sq ft (65-75g/dm2)
* Length: 67.5 in (1580mm)
* Requires: 2-stroke .61-.91 cu in (10-15cc) or 4-stroke .91 cu in
(15cc) engine, 4-channel radio w/5 servos

Each aileron has its own servo, mounted inside the wing for a sleek
appearance and to reduce drag.

The Minnow flies well with a 2-stroke .61 * but it's a real "hot rod"
when equipped with a 4-stroke .91 engine like the OS Surpass!

The fiberglass wheel pants simply slip over the axles and secure with
two screws. For added realism, Great Planes includes a painted
fiberglass cowl, formed and painted aluminum landing gear and a scale
aluminum spinner.
